Patricia Elizabeth Grant, 88, of Clarks Summit, died Friday at Abington Manor.
Born Oct. 9, 1933, in Clarks Summit, she was the daughter of the late William J. and Mary Elizabeth (Healey) Grant. A lifelong Clarks Summit resident, she was a 1952 graduate of Abington High School. Most of Pat's career she was employed by the Metropolitan Life Insurance Data Center, Clarks Summit, as a computer operator, and later she was a clerk at J.C. Penney, Viewmont Mall; after retirement with her greet-friendly personality, she was a greeter at Walmart, Dickson City. She was a member of Our Lady of Snows Church, its Women's Guild and the Ladies Auxiliary Joseph A. Hall Memorial of the Clarks Summit Volunteer Fire Company #1 Inc.
Pat was a person about town often seen walking the dog at the time. She had a mind of her own and was always willing to help others. She loved her family and the time spent on the porch of the family homestead. Her kindness will be sadly missed.
